MKC skips a refresh and goes straight for a complete redesign for 2019.

I've said this for quite a while that we'd see a Navi "concept" this year. The timing just makes too much sense, just like MKC, MKX, and Continental before it, which each followed the pattern of concept (year 1), production model (year 2), model on sale (model year 3).

MKC: 2013 show - concept > 2014 show - production model shown for 2015 model year

MKX: 2014 show - concept > 2015 show - production model shown for 2016 model year

Continental: 2015 show - concept > 2016 show - production model shown for 2017 model year

and now, Navigator: 2016 show - concept > 2017 show - production model shown for 2018 model year


And we're obviously at the 2016 show now.

When you go into the future vehicles section of Lincoln's site, you will see the Continental and MKZ. No biggie. Click those links and you'll see the cars. Cool.

http://www.lincoln.com/2017-continental/
http://www.lincoln.com/2017-mkz/

NOW.

Change those links to something ridiculous and random and you'll get redirected to a site map. Cool. Clearly this page doesn't exist on the site because I made it up.

Here's where it gets fun. Create the link below with this magic combo of words and you get ACCESS DENIED! I repeat, ACCESS DENIED!!! The website for the Navigator concept exists!! It just isn't available to those not on their secure server.
But since we don't get redirected to the site map, we now have proof of a Navigator concept.

http://www.lincoln.com/navigator-concept/

And Canada for good measure. Same result.

Brilliant idea! I think we've just discovered a way to confirm imminent auto show reveals. Good job!

Re: Lincoln: 2016 New York Auto Show

Looked at the New York Auto Show website and the lincoln page shows every lincoln EXCEPT the Navigator. Thats a decent hint that "no we aren't showing the 2016, we're showing something new".

What do you all think?

I wonder if something is happening with the MKT? We know it's going to continue on for another 3 years and is due for replacement/refresh for 2017. With 3 more years to run, it's refresh now or never.

Note that on the Lincoln site, well into 2016 there is no 2016 MKT, just the 2015. While on the Ford site, the Flex has a 2016 model.

And, even on their media site, no 2016 MKT, or MKS, no 2016 Navigator listed even...
